And … we’re off!
The 8th annual Bead Soup Blog Party is officially underway, and international partners have been assigned!
(If you’ll remember from last year’s post … the Bead Soup Blog Party is a wonderful once a year event, partnering participates from all over the world, who in turn send each other an assortment of beads and other goodies with the hopes of challenging their jewellery design skills and encouraging them to “think outside of their normal box” when it comes to creating pieces of jewellery. All of this is the brainchild of the amazing, one and only – Lori Anderson of Pretty Things Blog!)
I have just *met* my partner from the U.K. (hand picked by Lori, herself) and I must say … Niky Sayers of Silver NikNats and I must be kindred spirits! From her being a self proclaimed “lampwork bead addict”, to her taste in art, to her love of colour, the British show Sherlock & all things vintage-y – her contradiction (favourite word!) in style is as eclectic as mine! I’m very excited to see where this year’s soup will take us
Stay tuned to find out …
** Update: the Blog Party has been pushed back a week, and will now begin on May 10th! **
